AADE raises scholarship funds at annual golf tournament

LAFAYETTE, La. - The American Association of Drilling Engineers hosted its annual AADE Golf Classic this month at Oakbourne Country Club in Lafayette. Participants from across the energy industry hit the course June 10 for a good cause. The annual golf tournament is one of the AADE's key fund-raising events to provide scholarships assistance to petroleum engineering students at state universities.

Participants played morning and afternoon rounds in a 4-man scramble format. Prizes were awarded to teams and individuals earning top scores and gifts, food and drinks available from the many energy industry sponsors.

"Our annual golf tournament is always a great success because of the continuous support from our participants and generous sponsors," said Greg Drury, AADE Golf Committee Chairman. "This is a worthwhile event that allows participants to spend a day on the golf course, network with clients and industry friends, enjoy delicious food and feel good that you are helping give petroleum engineering students at state universities financial support."

The AADE, a nonprofit volunteer organization made up of independent chapters, offers a forum for the exchange of information and education on industry and drilling-related topics.
